Self-Report Mitigates Sanction
The Louisiana Supreme Court agreed with the recommendation of its Attorney Disciplinary Board and imposed a six-month suspension with all but thirty days stayed in a case where an assistant district attorney had used her position to assist a lifelong friend in the collection of a debt.
The attorney had self-reported the misconduct to her employer and lost her job as a result of the inappropriate use of the authority of her office. (Mike Frisch)
